    I'd pick a great wit or raconteur. Churchill, Oscar Wilde, Robert Benchley, Dorothy Parker, Steven Fry. Even someone like Quentin Crisp. Did you know that during the 80s in New York, dinner with QC was reputed to be the best show in town? What would I do? I'd listen, and hopefully roar with laughter for several hours.

    Jesus might be interesting too, but less entertaining. Plus I bet someone else goes for Jesus, so hopefully they'll post what he said.

    I think Benjamin Franklin would be a very interesting person to spend the day with. He was smart, inventive, witty, learned, a great conversationalist and diplomat. We would stroll the streets of Philadephia -- I would pick his brain and hopefully we would have a good banter.

    Ronald Reagan, I would discuss his politics and his strong beliefs in the Country.
